Being both a boat builder and sailor gives Marine Surveyor James Newcombe a distinct advantage when it comes to understanding what to look for when conducting Pre Purchase Inspections, Surveys and Pre Insurance Surveys. Whether it is a pleasure boat, yacht, classic boat, fishing boat – any boat at all – James extensive experience and ability to communicate with boat owners whether they be new to boating or experienced sea goers sets him apart from the competition.
His C.V reads impressively; following his completion of a Trade certificate in Yacht and Boat Buildng he has been involved in the construction, modification and repair of many types of vessels; from custom built wooden launches, work on the QE2, superyachts and ocean going racers his knowledge and range of experience is vast. James also holds an IIMS Diploma in Marine Surveying.
Even his hobbies are marine related; with yachting, wind surfing and boat building listed amongst his favourite spare time activities, this is a guy that lives and breathes boats.
James will travel to all regions to conduct surveys as required including the Auckland and Bay of Plenty Regions.
